Almost everyday I passed through the oldest street of Cebu – Colon St.  And every time I passed by, I always noticed the tallest building in Colon, the GV Tower Hotel, and wonder my self what Colon looks like on the top view from GV Tower Hotel Cebu branch.

And so I decided to stay 1 night at GV Hotel. Grabbed my Canon SLR and bought a few drinks and food. When I first enter the building, I didn’t noticed any reception area.  Instead, I noticed a small sheet of paper that was glued near the elevator stating “Reception Area @ 7th Floor”. LOL, unique for a hotel. hehe..

When I first spoke to the GV Tower front desk officer, I personally asked for the top-most room, that would be @ 16th floor. And the desk officer was like “What?… a room in the 16th floor?”. She then smiled and murmured to her fellow attendant.

In my thoughts, I asked myself what’s wrong with staying in the top-most room? Suddenly, my mind came up with a supernatural notion like a presence of white lady’s or ghosts in GV Tower Hotel. Or maybe there was an accident that happened on the said floor that the public was not aware of.

Out of the blue, another desk officer asked me what kind of accommodation am I going to avail and how long (geezz.. I just woke up on my day dreaming, haha). And so, I answered her swiftly, fill-up a few information and swipe my Credit card.

“Sir, it’s all set now. Your room number is #1015” said the front desk officer.

“Why #1015?” I replied. “I am specifically asking for a room on the 16th floor and yet you give me a room on the 10th floor?” I followed up.

“All rooms in the 16th floor are already occupied Sir” she answered.

WTF? I doubt what she just said but what choice do I have. I can’t see their hotel database.

I was a bit diverted though when she mentioned that GV Tower Hotel is currently having a 5th year anniversary promo and they’re giving 50% discounts to all room rates. Cool.. hehe.

By the way, I think they’re doing this yearly so if you’re planning to stay in GV, choose a day in between September to November. They also have a rainy day promo. Wink 😉

When the elevator stopped & opened on the 10th floor, I immediately sense creepiness. The light was dim, silence was everywhere and the cool breeze of air runs through your skin. Now, I am very glad they didn’t gave me a room on the 16th floor. hahaha..

Here are more pictures I took inside of the room of  GV Hotel Tower Cebu.

Actually, the CR is very small… and has a very limited space for shower. Not ideal for BIG persons.

Observations and Review inside GV Tower Hotel;

  • The aircon can’t cool enough the entire room
  • No slippers available
  • Very small CR
  • Only few TV Channels ( Doesn’t even have HBO Chan.. grr..)

My overall rating for GV Tower Hotel Cebu: Affordable Price but not a very nice place to stay. Will never come back. 😉
